While Mexican immigrants tend to experience difficulties accessing healthcare services and often experience many barriers to health including low rates of health insurance coverage and low income and educational levels, they paradoxically also enjoy better outcomes in many areas including perinatal health, diabetes, heart disease and more, a phenomenon known as the Immigrant Paradox.
This conference explores the two-sided coin of the health disadvantages and advantages of the Mexican population, bringing in nationally recognized experts on Mexican immigration and health and showcasing CUNY-based expertise, as well. This conference will enable a dialogue between local and national scholars, as well as between academics, advocates and practitioners.
The conference will be streamed live over the internet and audio and video proceedings from this conference will be archived and made available. They will constitute the first holdings of an electronic archive of Mexican studies materials at the City University of New York. Conference proceedings may be published.
The conference will also serve as the academic launch event for the newly formed approved CUNY Institute for Mexican Studies.
